Rhinehart envisions Soylent as part of a future utopia in which no one has to grocery shop or scrub dishes, people spend less money and time on food, and everyone is healthy, having slurped down exactly the nutrients they need.

this sounds like hell.  good food is probably the most exciting thing on earth.  take that away, and fark existence.

I think this is a good idea, but won't be used the way people think.  Imagine the ease of getting this stuff to disaster stricken places, or being able to keep a bag of it on the shelf for emergencies. Also some of the benefits he lists could be due to him not eating all theadditives in processed food. Yes, switching to whole food is healthier, but you have to break the addiction first. Being limited to one thing would make this much easier. Finally, there are times when I have to eat, but am really am not in the mood to cook and don't really care what I eat. This way I'd be eating somethingnutritious rather than whatever junk is on the counter. (I'd find it much easier to get excited about cooking if I didn't have to do it all the time.)
